    It seems like yalls budget is where I'm wanting to keep ours as well. so glad to know its doable I wish me could decide on where to go.  My coordinator from DW.com is not been much help, at all.

    And I agree with you Gomez, I want amazing pictures, but am wondering if I should take a photog with me or find a local to the resort we choose. What are you planning on doing?

        Our budget is around $10,000. The wedding itself includes everything (decoration, officiant, dinner/drinks, flowers, massage/mani/pedi for both etc) is $3900. Our flight will be around $1000. Our stay at the hotel for the week and then the hotel in Cozumel for honeymoon week is $900 for the 2 weeks AI. Photography is $2000. Dress, suit and OOT bags will round it out.

         

        Can't wait!

            From other posts I think were a bit on the high end. After all is said and done it looks like it will be around $30,000.
            46 booked and counting!

              Wow ya thats quite a bit more. I know Excellence though is a nicer hotel. Are you getting a lot of extras or is the wedding package your chose just higher end.

               

              I think we're going to be close to $20,000 when its all said and done, but thats also for 2 weeks stay at the hotel.

                yeah, we are going to end up close to the 20 mark too i think, but that is two weeks, and including our ahr and legal and everything. I might be able to bring it down... that's the goal anyway! We are including some pretty big items into our total, including FI's stag weekend in Vegas, and my stagette weekend at a spa... and our travel there and we will be there for two weeks (hopefully). So, we'll see if I can keep the costs down!

                  Unfortunetly, I do not know of any photographers that specialize in weddings.. But asking my family and friends if they know anyone is a great idea, I can't believe I didn't think of that. And I agree, I want to see as much wedding pics from that photog as I can see. I created a folder on my computer and anytime I find wedding pics I like, I save them. I figured this would be easy to hand over to the photog so he/she can get an idea of what we want out of our pictures. I noticed some resorts charge a crazy fee if you hire a local photog so I guess everything will really depend on what location/resort we choose.

                      We're going to spend about $20K not including dress, rings, and suit.
